Welcome: Thankful for Your Partnership in the Gospel



Colossians 1:3-8 3ŒæWe always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you,4Œæbecause we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all Godäó»s peopleäóî 5Œæthe faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel 6Œæthat has come to you. In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole worldäóîjust as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood Godäó»s grace. 7ŒæYou learned it from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant, who is a faithful minister of Christ on our behalf, 8Œæand who also told us of your love in the Spirit. 1 Peter 1:3-5 3ŒæPraise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4Œæand into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 5Œæwho through faith are shielded by Godäó»s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.

1 Corinthians 1:18

ξ18ξFor the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
